Opening up your MacBook to uncover its internals sounds like an overwhelming undertaking, however in reality it’s quite simple. Since we’re just removing the base cover and that’s it. That is all we have to get to the primary hardware and cooling fans, which are only a couple of screws away.

What You’ll Need

This progression is basically the same for any advanced MacBook, with the exception of the latest Touch Bar models (more on that underneath). Flip over your MacBook with the base upside. Take your P5 pentalobe screwdriver and detach the screws around the edge of your MacBook. Monitor each screw and where it goes, considering some of them are of distinctive lengths.

When you have every one of the screws expelled, you can lift up the base cover from the back. Some MacBook models likewise have two or three little clasps that hold the cover set up from the inside, however you can deliberately simply pry up the cover to unclip it.

Presently, starting with the Touch Bar MacBook Pro in 2016 (counting the non-Touch Bar models), Apple acquainted another progression with the expulsion of the base cover. Not withstanding the pentalobe screws, you additionally need to utilize a suction container and a guitar pick to get the cover totally off.

With the base cover off, you presently approach the inner segments of your MacBook. Set aside the opportunity to assess everything for dust development. You most likely won’t need to look that hard.

Next, find the cooling fan(s). You may have more than one, depending upon your particular model; however they’re anything but difficult to spot. Simply search for the round dark turbine-looking things. This is likely where there’s the most residue development, since cooling fans suck in air from the encompassing zone. So if your home is especially dusty, you may have a not too bad cleanup work in front of you.

Stage Three: Gently Blow Out Any Dust

Next, take your jar of packed air and tenderly start blowing dust from anywhere you see. You shouldn’t go full throttle on it,  since there’s the danger of harming segments.

When you get to the fan, make sure to utilize a finger to hold the fan set up and shield it from turning while you utilize the compacted air. Something else will cause the fan to spin quicker than it’s intended to, which could harm the fan engine and the fan heading.

If that residue’s especially resolute, you can utilize some cotton swabs to eradicate it to the surface and blow it out, however the vast majority of the residue should escape without any hussle.

Once you’re done, just reattach the base cover and ensure you press in the clasps in the middle to situate them. From that point, screw it back on and you’re ready to go.
